Abstract:

The study examines the effect of different planting densities on the growth and yield of Brassica nipposinica L. (Mizuna), an important leafy green in diverse culinary applications. Growth metrics such as plant height, leaf count, and biomass accumulation were monitored, alongside yield parameters including total fresh weight and leaf area index.
Findings revealed that planting density significantly influences growth patterns and yield outcomes. At low planting density, individual plants exhibited robust growth but the overall yield per unit area was suboptimal. Medium planting density emerged as the most efficient, balancing plant competition and resource availability to maximize yield per area. Conversely, high planting density led to excessive competition, stunting growth and diminishing yield per plant.
This study provides critical data to inform planting strategies for Mizuna and potentially other leafy greens, promoting enhanced agricultural productivity. Further investigation is suggested to assess the interplay between planting density and variables such as soil fertility and water management to refine cultivation practices.
